Our 200W 24V DC 52mm Spindle with ER11 3.175mm (1/8 in.) Collet is the perfect upgrade for mostly stock 3018-PRO, 3018-PROVer and clone 3018 type machines. Just the right size! This light and powerful unit is a big improvement in rigidity and performance over the stock OEM 775 Spindle (which is essentially a standard brushed drill motor). Runs well on the stock Woodpecker CNC board, without modification – just ensure your power supply is up to the task of delivering the additional current (Click Here for the Suggested 10A Power Supply). Note: Any brushed spindle larger than 200W should not be run directly off of the Woodpecker CNC board.
You’ll need to upgrade your spindle carriage assembly from the OEM 775 type (42mm) to our 52mm Spindle Carriage to accommodate the larger diameter of the spindle. Our upgraded spindle carriage comes with quality bearings and our zero-backlash lead screw block.
Additional 200W Spindle Electrical Specifications
Startup Current (surge) | 5A
Stall Current | 20A
Suggested In-line fuse (highly recommended*) | 8A
*Should you stall the motor in the work, the current generated is sufficient to damage the motor control in your control board. Installing a fused link inline to the spindle is considered a “best practice”.
